Toilet Flange
Posted by Tom Stock on January 20, 2003 at 20:06:31:
My wife and I just moved into a new (to us) house built in 1966. The downstairs bath toilet was leaking and caused bubbling in the 3/4" plywood attached to the subfloor. I started ripping it up, when I realized that the floor flange appears to be permanently attached to the cast iron drain line. Is this normal? It appears to be attached with a soft metal (I can scratch it easily with a screwdriver).

I need to rip up the plywood from around the flange and then reinstall new plywood around it. How should I remove the flange? Or should I?

Thanks in advance!!!
